A fascinating made-to-order document, presenting historical map extracts centred on your home
My House History is a fascinating made-to-order portfolio, presenting historical Ordnance Survey map extracts centred on your home or area of choice. The OS Mapping is taken from individual surveys of your area which commenced circa 1841 through to the 1960s. After the initial survey, the mapping for every county in England and Wales was further revised between three and five times during this period, thus your personal Portfolio will contain multiple extracts illustrating those survey editions. A typical Portfolio contains seven historical map extracts at two scales (1:2,500 & 1:10,560).
In addition to the above historical mapping (which comes complete with a legend to aid interpretation), your Portfolio will also contain a contemporary full colour aerial photograph (scale 1:2,500) and a complimentary full colour extract taken from the current OS Landranger map base presented at 1:50,000 scale (worth £5.95). Again, both extracts will be centred on your Portfolio’s location.
Available for England and Wales only.
